Abstract: We present some new convergence results for a discrete velocities BGK approximation to an initial boundary value problem for a single hyperbolic conservation law. In this paper we show stability and convergence toward a unique entropy solution in the general $BV$ framework without any restriction either on the data of the limit problem or on the set of velocity of the BGK model.
